Sync's from jsr166 - > jdk8 are in progress. Paul and I have pushed, or 
still in flight, a number of changeset over the past number of weeks. I 
would hope to have the remainder of changes in jdk8 soon.

doclint issues should be fixed in jsr166 CVS first. Either work with 
Doug or Martin to provide patches based in the CVS source, or wait until 
jdk8 catches up, and then the patches should be applicable to both 
sources ( accounting for header offset ).
